Exotic clothing, souvenirs, aromatic spices and crafted jewelry and so much more.  The Zulu Medicine Market is a unique place where Zulu culture has survived in the modern urban environment. Your guide will take you on an informative tour of “Inyanga (Doctors) lane”. 

The Moses Mabhida stadium has become a defining feature of the Durban skyline. It has a high-rise platform on top of its arch which is accessible by an elevator called the Sky Car for an additional fee.

The KwaMuhle Museum was once the headquarters of Durban’s Native Administration Department and the centre of Durban’s harsh system of labour control. Now it has been transformed into Durban’s Apartheid Museum that seeks to reflect Durban’s urban growth and the history of its residents.
